Cedar Closet Lining Ideas
Cedar closet lining with panels have several beneficial qualities. Cedar is known to fight insect infestations and repel moths, for example. It is also very resistant to moisture. For this reason cedar is used in saunas. However, closets lined in cedar presents few dangers worth considering before making an investment in the material.
Cedar repels insects and chewing moths in clothing but does so because of its smell. This smell is strong in some cases, so when you install it in your cedar closet lining. Be willing to come constantly through the smell. Your clothes smell of cedar because the fabric absorbs naturally and carries the smells. Inside the carpeted closet of the house you can also start to smell of cedar, and the smell is difficult to get rid of traditional cleaning materials.
Cedar not all is free from deformation. Many cedar boards twist, curl and crack after installation, especially cedar boards that do not dry in the oven. The dried cedar boards maintain their shape through all conditions. Air-dried cedar boards that are found in home store yards or wood improvement can be cheap but they are probably not kiln-dried. The cedar closet lining boards simply will not work as expected if they are not properly dried at a very high temperature.
